“Reproductive health problems are often not explicitly discussed with a health professional,” Dr Holden said.

“Many of the oldest men regard (ED) as a normal part of ageing.”

Dr Holden said doctors should be encouraged to actively enquire about a male patient’s reproductive health, irrespective of the man’s age or sexual desire.
